corrupted downloads

For some reason i have a problem downloading any type of executable file.  Whenever i try to extract the file or run setup, i get error messages such as I/O errors, corrupted download errors, missing .dll's, as well as some others.  This problem has been consistent since i first put this computer together. I've formatted and reloaded windows on two seperate hard drives but that didn't solve the issue.  I thought it might be my nic card, so i changed it out and that isn't the issue.  What could cause all my downloads to be corrupt from all different types of programs, such as zone alarm, firefox, flash player, dvdshrink, and anything else you can think of? Any help would be appreciated

Here's my system specs:
ASUS A89-SLI Mobo
2 GB Corsair pc4000
AMD athlon 64 3400
2 PNY NVidia 6800 Ultra's
2 250 GB Maxtor HD's
Windows XP Pro. Service Pack 2 and fully updated

Are you using a router?  Are you able to connect directly to your modem and see if they are still corrupted when downloaded?
